SPEECHDAY has improved with every start and went close to catching the winner over track and trip last time. Marco Botti's filly gets the vote to show further progress and confirm running with third-placed Beylerbey. The latter should also improve and has a shout of reversing running on better terms, but both Joyful Risk and Ambella finished further behind in the same race and are harder to fancy. Her Honour disappointed last time so Last Echo makes more appeal on her recent comeback effort at Lingfield.
